    Since the meltdown of 2008, U.S. universities have collaborated with the Pentagon to study dynamics
    of social movements, worldwide. The goal of “terrorism studies” is “to find possible vectors of
    resistance, which are to be identified and eradicated, like a disease.” The Minerva Initiative, like NSA
    spying, sees the entire planet as “enemy territory.”

    In the language of ‘terrorism studies,’ the human beings involved in these social movements are 'contagions,' as in vectors of disease.”

    The U.S. Department of Defense is immersed in studies about...people like you. The Pentagon wants
    to know why folks who don’t themselves engage in violence to overthrow the prevailing order become,
    what the military calls, “supporters of political violence.” And by that they mean, everyone who
    opposes U.S military policy in the world, or the repressive policies of U.S. allies and proxies, or who
    opposes the racially repressive U.S. criminal justice system, or who wants to push the One Percent off
    their economic and political pedestals so they can’t lord it over the rest of us. (I’m sure you recognize
    yourself somewhere in that list.)

    The Pentagon calls this new field of research “terrorism studies,” which is designed to augment and
    inform their so-called War on Terror. Through their Minerva Research Initiative, the military has
    commissioned U.S. universities to help it figure out how to deal with dissatisfied and, therefore,
    dangerous populations all around the world, including the United States.
